See Me And Let Me Awake: A #Poem On Female Foeticide

Posted on November 14, 2011 in Short Stories & Poems

By Nitin Dayal:

You show me the knife

And deprive me of life

I too wanna live

There is nothing that I cannot do

There is nothing that I cannot achieve

I am your mother

A friend a lover

I give you the strength to fight

And set things right

You hold my hands

I am the one who understands

I have a dream

A dream to belong

Sing my beautiful song

Please do not make this mistake

See me and let me awake
